In the beginning, women were sluts. Then men figured out how to control them. Then some uppity women figured out how to get back some bodily autonomy, which was an obvious mistake. We've learned our mistake and would like take-backsies please.

They're going to end up enshrining "soul" in American law, and I don't mean Aretha.

Yeah? Well I notice that the vast, VAST majority of people against abortion will never have to face that decision.

You know Ted Cruz's daughter will get an abortion if she shows up pregnant at 14.  Family OB-Gyn, same-day service, no questions asked.  He's not pro-life, he's pro-Ted Cruz, Anointed Lizard King of the End Times.

Toe v Wade is the modern Dred Scott decision. It will be overturned.

Sadly this will only bad the procedure in the states where Christ still reigns..

We are going to have to push for more federal legislation to ban this scourge.

But it's the same for just about every anti-abortion crusader. Their kid shows up with an unwanted pregnancy, and suddenly it's off for a two-day vacation at a "health spa" in Mexico or wherever. Suddenly, no more inconvenient pregnancy, and the secret stays safe because HIPPA and general sweeping under the rug.

All hush-hush and secretive, like they're ashamed of something.

I notice countries with liberal social policies have better child care then the US. Since 3/4 of the wonen seeking abortions do so for financial reasons, to lower the rate we need proper child care services also proper sex education and birth control.

This. The "Unborn" are an imaginary group of people. They literally do not exist.

Imagine what a lazy, uncaring person you have to be to pick a victim-group to help that BY DEFINITION do not exist, and will never cost you anything.

But why were there wire hangers in the house?

I've heard of the scene but never watched the movie. She's talking to a child, right? Did the kid sneak out of the house and smuggle in wire hangers?

If they're never to be used it seems easy enough to just not let them come through the front door.

I'm skeptical of this incident.

Stuff comes back from the cleaners on wire hangers.  The child's chore is to remove the clothes from the wire hangers and put them on "good" hangers, and dispose of the wire ones.

This was not my crazy parents' particular issue, but they had some bizarre habits that they insisted on we kids performing, so I have no problem seeing this as real, at all.
